vocalizing with bb king while the republican presidential field prepared for a debate in arizona with recent and not so recent statements hanging over their individual hits. starting with the president. president obama appearing for the groundbreaking of the african-american museum and calling for cutting the top rate from 28%--cutting the top rate to 28%. reducing the manufacturing rate to 25%. cutting corporate deductions and loopholes, and be cutting corporate deductions, ending tax breaks for companies outsource jobs, much of what was stated in the state of union address. timothy geithner said that it will help level the playing field for businesses and allow the government to collect revenue. the 2012 presidential race looking more like a level playing field to the white house with a slight lean to the
president. mr. obama edging romney in a poll with the caveat that is registered voters, not any form of likely voters. the margin error totals to 4%. he's doing better against santorum. mr. romney with a tax plan of his own. >> i'm going to lower rates across the board for all americans by 20%. >> or so he says. romney promising to cap all taxes by 28% lowering corporate tax rate to 25%. if that sound like a nod to the 1%. romney said he'll let middle class families keep their deductions. >> we'll cut back on that so we make sure that the top 1% keeps paying the current share they're paying or more. >> occupy mitt mitt. now under way. romney uttering spending cuts her see on tuesday. >> if you just cut. if all you're thinking about doing is cutting spending, while you cut spending you'll slow down the economy. >> i thought he would be hit by
lightening for saying that. it's written that it's hogwash. who is mitt mitt? rick santorum suggesting arizona voters would like to know. >> i encourage you to actually look at the records of the candidates, look at what the candidates are saying they're for. >> looking at what santorum says he's for brought us his 2008 comments on this news hour yet. that america was under attack by satan. santorum backing down from that today. >> i believe in good and evil. they want to dig up old speeches of talking to a religious group they can do that. >> good enough. this golden oldie he said they
have become the party of woodstock. it's about sexual freedom. the huffington post reporting in a 1995 philadelphia magazine article, the pro-life quoted at saying, i was basically pro-choice all my life until i ran for congress. also digging out a santorum campaign 1990 issue statement reading in part, while having no abortions would be ideal it is very difficult to criminalize any activity once a large portion of the company sees it as a right. and danger to the mother's health cannot be prohibited by the legislation. but hogan gively insisting in response i rick rick has always been pro-life. he ran as a pro-life candidate and got elected as a pro-life candidate. alan simpson had his own view on santorum. >> he's rigid and homophobic.
he believes in gays and lebanonance and mentioned about beatality and gays and lesbians. that's disgusting. >> g.o.p. primary voters may not agree with romney and santorum tying in michigan. leaving the president singing the blues a happy blues number at a white house performance last night along side the legends mick jagger and bb king ♪ come on ♪ baby don't you ♪ want to go ♪ sweet home chicago ♪ >> having previously heard a little of him pretending that he was al green reporters wanting to know when we might hear from that president again and getting a comment from jay
carney. >> i can't predict. maybe the next time at the inauguration next year. >> joining us on the dually tax plans i'm join with miss ms. anderson. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> the dead on arrival what was the point of it. >> it was well a well really a way for him to get a new talking point. this was mentioned in the state of the union speech. he had been mentioning raising taxes on oil and gas lowering the tax rate and lowering the tax rate on manufacturers. that also plays into something that rick santorum had been trying to do, focusing on manufacturers, in terms of lowering the tax rate and jump-starting a job creation here. you've seen a president who has been feeling good these last days. you see a president where the economic numbers the job numbers, the unemployment rate has declined.
i think is just furthering his message that he's on top of looking at job creation on top of this economy. and he really, i think takes away some of the momentum from some of the republican candidates who now have to fine a new talking point in terms of what they would do for the economy. >> and to that end romney's tax plan this analysis from a nonpartisan group says the plan he proposed would allow the wealthy to pay far less in taxes than they do. it appears to be paid for by unspecified cuts to social security and medicare. is this just to get red meat going? >> i think in some ways yes. you have seen a romney campaign that has been struggling to get it's footing. here is a campaign all about the economy, and he's like to face a president nominee they're likely to see a president with numbers that are decent. the economy is improving so they need to change their game. that's what we see mitt romney
doing. very interesting, as you pointed out, he's adopting the language of occupy wall street and looking a bit like a moderate saying we can't cut our way off of job creation. that's something that the tea party folks won't want to hear. he'll unveil a bit of this on friday and in michigan, and of course in a tight race there his own home state and locked in a dead-hit race there with rick santorum. >> do we have an idea why he he said that about cuts and the effect on the economy. it seems to me that the only way any republican could say that before the nomination was sewn up was that he believes the path was clear for him to have the nomination sewn up. >> we've seen mitt romney over these last many months. he does seem in some place to be all over the place in a lot of ways and issues. on the one hand he seems to be run together right of newt
gringrich and santorum and perry all over the place over these last many months, but this was an odd comment i think for him to make. this whole idea of cuts not being the way to growth. of course we know that's the entire republican on the far right, that's very much their mantra. that's the tea party mantra, we need to strengthen the government and jump start the economy. but i think you have a romney campaign, as much as he led a tight race in michigan, i think he's doing pretty well in arizona. i do think they're seeing santorum implode in the way that they did with newt gringrich. it was almost like they could sort of stand back, certainly they helped with all those negative ads but in some ways a newt gringrich didn't help his case for being the candidate because of all the things that he said about being a food-stamp president and all the same ways they see santorum doing the same thing. going into social issues, talking about contraception. talking about the devil.
i don't know how many presidential hopefuls in the last 25, 50 years talk about the devil. i grew up in the south and i've been to many a baptist church on sunday morning. lots of talk about the devil then but not on the presidential stump. this is something that he thinks will gin up his base, this far right, but you feel like santorum had that base already so why he feels like he needs to go there is just i don't know understand why he feels why he needs to go there. >> i would guess the terrible fear that satan is running as a third party candidate. thanks for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> let's look at some questions who must be troubling republicans tonight. who is mitt romney and rick santorum and why do fewer people care now than two months ago. for that i'm joined by marcos, good evening. >> good evening, keith. >> let's look at internal and external. internal first.
i was basically pro-choice all my life until i ran for congress. hard cases abortion hard cases cannot be criminalized. a spokesman said that he always ran as a pro-life candidate. denial denial, denial. this could deflate that about a balloon. >> i'm willing to give the republicans the benefit of the doesn't that they get crazier as they get older. rick santorum gets nuttier by the day. the denial, as we know rick santorum is as religious as he says he is that there is actually a commandment that addresses that sort of thing. >> the external problem. sexual freedom which he seems to be totally against in all forms. is that what the g.o.p. fear when they worry about santorum winning the nomination, there will be something so off-putting that there be no chance of a
democrat or independent running for a republican candidate and you literally have to have satan running as a third party to bring anybody over to your side? >> yeah, absolutely. rick santorum really bottom line is uncollect electable. he lost by 27 points in pennsylvania. the last time he ran for re-election, the guy isn't exact exactly the strongest election candidate. it seems like he was running as dana carver's church lady which is funny if you're doing an "snl" skit but not if you're running as president of the united states. >> is he going to have to spend the rest of the primaries trying to live that down and if and when he gets the nomination, what the democrats could use with that quote. >> it depends what mitt romney shows up that day. if it's the mitt romney who forgot that he's running in a republican primary, and he's talking about no spending cuts
and a prerogative tax structure and talking about the 1% and the 99%, well, maybe not so much. but he still has to run a republican primary. half the time he's talking about all the spending cuts he needs to make, non-defense spending cuts. so with this--i don't know if it really effects him moving forward, what it does is really reinforces the fact that he has no core, no ideological grounding, no principles, no mooring nothing on any issue or ethical concern. >> lastly, he was up on the president by a couple. but that's just register voters, which is a popularity contest. but another had him over romney and santorum. they've been tracking g.o.p. republican interests in the
presidential race. 40% of the republicans are dissatisfied with all the candidates, in other words, the choice. in december 48% said they had a great interest in following this race now it's down to 40%. as much as it's grown more and more entertaining for people who are standing on the sidelines especially people with a left of center point of view apparently there has been an attrition rate with the number of republican candidates. >> i don't think the polls are that off. the exact number by be off by a point or two but the trend lines are consistent. mitt romney was competitive two months ago and is becoming less and less competitive particularly in battleground states. what we found out the longer this drags out the less people like rick santorum, the less they like mitt romney, and the better obama looks in comparison, not to mention the money being spent. the romney spent $28 million in january alone. the more he keeps up and the
more he spends that money we're actually encouraging democrats to vote in open primaries say like michigan, north dakota, tennessee and vermont the longer this goes on, the better it will be for democrats this fall. >> you know you have a president who is willing to sing. >> he's feeling cocky. >> but he's not a depressed man relative to his future job. it's always a pleasure. >> pleasure, thanks so much. >> a confused situation in virginia where the state may have removed the transvaginal probe provision that we told you about on its is on the new news network. >>welcome to the war room. >>jennifer granholm joins current tv. a former two-term governor. >>make your voice heard. >>detremined to find solutions. >>that partnership in order to invest in our country is critical. >>driven to find the truth. >>how did romney get his groove back?
>>fearless, independent and above all, politically direct. i'm freaking out man. why? i thought jill was your soul mate. no, no it's her dad. the general's your soul mate? dude what? no, no, no. he's, he's on my back about providing for his little girl. hey don't worry. e-trade's got a totally new investing dashboard. everything is on one page, your investments, quotes, research... it's like the buffet last night. whatever helps you understand man. i'm watching you.
>> is there a partial victory over virginia's governor and the new restrictive abortion laws that would mandate transvaginal exams? or did they just rename the exam. how muslims the mayor says it's his job to protect not the city but the country. to paraphrase, who would serve this country better, i. losing it over a dr. seuss character. and a senator who mocks the girl scouts. he says the scouts are the newest voice in cable news is on the new news network. >>it is an independent progressive voice and i love
that. >>jennifer granholm joins current tv. a former two term governor. >>people like somebody who's got a spine. >>determined to find solutions... >>we need government to ensure that people have freedom. >>driven to find the truth... >>what's really going on? >>fearless, independent and above all, politically direct. >> as republican war on women's rights marchs on, all eyes have turned to virginia where that new bill mandated for a woman to receive an abortion she must undergo an procedure that some call state-sanctioned rape. now the law does not promote the procedure but they call it a gestational exam.
withlate yesterday a vote on the bill was delayed as the governor called the legislatures together to amend the language. this afternoon they announceed rye touch faintly that a deal has been reached. i'm asking the general assembly to state in this legislation that only a transabdominal or external ultrasound will be required to satisfy the requirements to determine gestational age. should a doctor determine that any form of ultrasound is necessary that will be an issue for the doctor and the patient the government will have no role in that medical decision. the bill with the new amendment quickly introduced on the house floor passed 65-32. while the amendment removed the warding mandating the transvaginal ultrasound the need for the procedure remains because in the early stages, a pregnancy, usually is not able to retrieve accurate images from the fetus. still images are required to obtain an abortion.
undergo a transvaginal ultrasound or wait until for the fetus to be seen by the external ultrasound. the bill does not mandate the procedure but the woman is still compelled to undergo it. this crazy ass bill with the new amendment will come up for a vote in this crazy ass senate on friday. joining me, irene. thanks for coming in. >> thanks, keith. >> from what you can tell is this in fact, this whole dance about allowing governor mcdonald to say i took the mean tv word out of this equation but there is still the process is still necessitated by what they're setting up here. >> honestly, to begin with, this is a procedure that is not medically necessary even if you're doing it through the abdominal wall even if you're not doing a transvaginal ultrasound. this is to humiliate women and try to get them to change their minds.
>> intimidate them. >> bully them. but this word has caused a lot of trouble for the republican. this bill has passed in a lot of states but that word never caught on. if you do have to produce the images then it's hard to fulfill it. the bottom line, it's already trying to get the doctor to do something that is beyond what the doctor would normally have at their discretion. some clinics already do have elective ultra sounds. but shoving in the doctor to the woman. >> in the new language the governor is saying we're not going to mandate this, but the doctor will have to mandate this. the responsibility is shunted away from the state even though the state is demanding it. it's a perfect--it is a definition of a catch 22. you don't need this exam. you can't make the doctor do it but you don't have to have the results of the exam. >> currently it doesn't make sense. it's not clear what is going to happen once the senate gets it. the point is mc mcdonald has had to be on defense.
this is the man who has passed legislation that was intended to shut down abortion clinics that performed abortions in the first trimester. nobody knew that. now he has to back down and we'll see what happens in the senate. >> i was going to ask you if there was a victory contained in all this. or a positive. for years legislatures have been doing things like this. is it all because of a word or a tipping point where people just sat back and said, this is crazy? >> look at the last few weeks. we've had this susan g koman debacle. the legislation trying to take away birth control access to women. this is adding up and people are starting to realize the original language to these ultrasound bills, the confirmed consent as if it a woman doesn't understand that the fetus could grow into a child. they're saying this is not an informed consent. this is about controlling women
and that's what ties together in the past few weeks. >> is there a sense starting with koman and the hearing that you're referencing, is there a sense up to this point women who were in favor of women's rights believed that there were compromises and nuances and that the right was going for restrictions or complications or things that any woman with her mind made up, it wouldn't matter to them anyway, to a realization in the last month that it is an attempt to push things back to zero. push things back to 1925. >> when you go against cancer screenings, when you're going against birth control access, suddenly you realize this is a concerted plan and these incremental things they're doing they're trying to turn back the clock for women and also that finally republicans are being honest about how they feel about women. just in the debate about this bill the kinds of things that republican legislatures and republican commentators said about rationale behind this bill you've already been
penetrated once. what's the problem. all these moments are moments of truth when you realize what their actual intentions are which are not about saving babies. they're really about punishing women. >> and the idea that you've already been penetrated once, what's your problem is one step away from saying is one step of defending rape. >> john stewart was saying with the same people, these same people who like to say that taxes are rape. they like to use rape all the time except when it uses actual penetrate. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you so much. >> for the really deep thinkers of the far right the enemy is not
1944 and still live, afounding before turning 94 years old. his famous announcement, his fake announcement that says weekend update is brought to you by pussy whip, the dessert topping for cats. time marchs on. we begin as we always do with bridges peopling up. there goes the the explosion. inconnecting ohio and virginia, it had fall no one a state of disrepair. now if you need to travel it,.
>> adele has now won the mastercard british card album of the year. they didn't allow her enough time to make a speech. >> i'm so so proud to be here and i'm so proud to be in the room with all of you. >> i can't believe i'm about to cut you off. >> i'm so sorry. >> do not cut me off. i'll say you goodbye. >> hey, it's mia. albums sold, 7.3 million. flipping off the people who gave you the mastercard of the year award that didn't allow to you make a speech, priceless. now in sports, doing the intro to the big dayton xavier rifle deciding they should do the intro from the ground. down goes fraser. despite the stool collapsing underneath him. mr. bates maintains his composure. and it was later revealed that a
demolition crew from steubinville had blown up up the stool. templar is on the new news network. >>welcome to the war room. >>jennifer granholm joins current tv. a former two-term governor. >>make your voice heard. >>detremined to find solutions. >>that partnership in order to is critical. >>driven to find the truth. >>how did romney get his groove back? >>fearless, independent and above all, politically direct.
americans. the nypd has not just been monitoring new yorkers, but they authorized convert surveillance of muslims students in 16 universities throughout the northeast, and the mayor is branding those who disagree with his idea of regional pelosiing citizen not protecting the country. at campuses of yale, university of pennsylvania, others, plain clothed police officers monster blogs and even white water rafting trips on monday, i'm write to go state in the strongest possible terms that police swans based on religion, nationality or peacefully expressed opinions are to ex-he against value and the united states. outraged that it would go against new york's finest.
mayor michael bloomberg. >> i don'twe have to keep this country safe. this is a dangerous place. make no mistake about it. it's very cute to go and blame everybody and say we should stay away from anything that smacks of intelligence gathering. >> how about just sticking to your own damn city. the aclu and the new york civil liberty union is calling for an investigation. thanks for your time, and gone gradalations on the award. >> thanks for having me, keith. >> get to the profiling part of this in a moment. but i'm concerned about the question. how is the nypd nationalize any covert work outside of new york state? >> well, i don't think they have to justify it to anybody. they just do it. and they go where they see fit. we've been reporting on this
since august, and they have not been working covertly in new jersey. they've gone as far as boston. in fact, they've gotten caught. >> yes does the nypd seem to draw either literally or figuratively a line anywhere? who can investigate and where they can investigate them? >> no, we found in our reporting, in the documents that we have that the nypd feels they can investigate anybody. >> is the premise, are the students at the 16 universities some how connected to the city of new york directly or is that not even a requirement. >> i don't think that's a requirement. clearly from a documents that we've seen and the people we've interviewed who took part in these programs a requirement was that they were muslim. >> i'm going to guess that the aclu requests for self investigation is just going to be ignored by the mayor who can say what he said. does any other law enforcement agency feel enough like its own toes have been stepped on by this that it would encourage
investigating the nypd? >> well, i men this has been brought to the attention of the justice department. congressman holt wrote a letter to the justice department and i believe approximately 34 members of congress has asked for an investigation. we are not clear if the justice department is doing anything about this. it doesn't appear to be any oversight in new york city. the mayor is essentially accountable to no one. there had been a few city council members who said we need to do something they won't even plug in the idea to the inspector general, but it doesn't seem it will go anywhere anywhere. >> it's filled with people who are vieying to succeed the mayor. they won't rock the boat if their own hide is on the rope. there is another sub basement involved in it.
do you think this is it or is there even more to go? >> we've got--we're still investigating. we're still talking to people. we're still looking at documents. i mean, just as the new york story demonstrated today, i mean mean, the madrid did that and the mayor cory booker, had no idea they did that. he was outraged. even the governor of new jersey didn't know about it. when he was the stop law enforcer in new jersey. >> summarize that. >> the nypd, their demographics unit, paul brown the police commissioner denied existing, went out and mapped newark, the documents released today they mapped newark, nassau county, and suffolk county on long island and they cataloged muslim businesses, mosques and they mapped them as well. >> huh goodness.
and we're all paying for it in new york. adam goldman, investigative reporter of the associated press press. con gladalations on the award and series and. >> thank you very much. >> perhaps the most disturbing fact of that paranoia, there will be people who hear about that nypd program and will feel good about it, and then join the rest of us in dropping our jaws at the news that one commentator believes that a dr. seuss movie is harming the country and the [ laura ] maine is known for its lighthouses, rocky shore and most importantly its lobster. it's the tastiest, the sweetest, the freshest. nobody can ever get enough.

i was surprised to hear there was no life insurance. funerals are so expensive. i hope larry can afford it. i know. that's why i'm glad i got a policy through the colonial penn program. do you think they have coverage for me... you can get permanent coverage for less than 35 cents a day. you won't have to take a physical or answer any health questions. plus, your costs will never go up and your coverage will never go down. if you're between 50 and 85, for less than 35 cents a day. there are no health questions or medical exam. you cannot be turned down because of your health. so call about the colonial penn program, and ask one of their representatives about a plan that meets your needs. with jennifer granholm. >>i am jenniffer granholm and you are in the war room.
it's a beautiful thing. >>jennifer granholm on current tv. >>i'm a political junkie. this show is my fix. >>in politics, she was a gutsy leader. in cable news, she's a game changer. >>be afraid, be very afraid. now, the two term governor from michigan is reshaping the debate with a unique perspective and a forward-thinking approach. >>our goal is to bring you behind the scenes with access to stories that you've never seen before. >>she's a trailblazer determined to find solutions. >>one of the key components of a war room is doing a bit of opposition research. >>driven to find the thruth. >>i'm obsessed with the role of govenment. >>fearless, idependent and above all, politically direct. >>part of the mission here in our own war room is to help these candidates stay on track. make your voice heard. >> lunatic fringe has found its new opponent dr. seuss.
lou dobbs fears dr. seuss next. sadly paranoia hardening of the arteries and bad breath are hardly exclusive to mr. dobbs. let's start with the bronze andy breitbart. today's sadness he lost twitter war to our own david shuster repeatedly denying the truth he and his attorneys missed the deadline in shirley sherrod's suit against him for having railroaded her out of her job at the department of agriculture: all of this brings us to our sixth slightly faster paced edition of andy breitbart's mashed up theater. >> you are animals. >> you're horrible. >> behave yourself. >> you're horrible. >> behave yourself. >> you're horrible! >> you freak.
you filthy freaks. >> you're horrible. >> you filthy, filthy, filthy filthy murdering freaks! >> my apologize to molly shannon for dragging her and her movie superstar.into this. runner up, the the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints. the mormon whistle blower helen radkey said they did another mormon baptisms. recall the mormon church apologizing to simon viesenthal for baptizing his parents. but now someone has baptized anne fronk. yes, the 15-year-old dutch girl killed by the nazis in 1945. helen radkey said this the ninth time that the mormons have baptized anne fronk since 1989.
if anyone of this religious stuff is true, one hopes that at least this leaves her know, the head mormon. but our winner, bob morris. this is prove that we do not pay our elected officials enough money. the fort wayne representative wrote saturday that he carefully investigated one radicalized organization and found that it supported abortions and homosexuality and the girl scouts. it was the girl scouts who are a threat to the united states, and's not even talking about the well-known fact that if you unscrew a girl scout cookies you are left with two weapons. despite the fact that brian bosma ridiculed morris by handing out girl scout cookie, morris will not only run unopposed he's doubled down
saying my family and i took a view and we're staying by it. he removed his daughters from the girl scouts and his critics should do more research, where and how did he it. >> i encourage you to get on the internet and do your research regarding girl scouts of america, and you'll find many of the same findings. >> you found out about the radicalize girl scouts by carefully researching on that fountain of information the internet? google santorum. bob morris, today's worst person in the world.

>> you well, it's happening again. the hollywood he liberals are indoctrinating your kids. the liberals better watch their backs because lou dobbs knows what they're up to. last night he discussed one of biggest threats facing our children. cartoons. >> hollywood is once again trying to indoctrinate our children. two new films out this year plainly within an agenda, plainly demonizing the 1%, and espousing the virtue of green energy policies come what may. the president's liberal friends in hollywood targeting a younger demographic using animated movies to sell their agenda to children. >> look out for that demonizing. what has dobbs so upset? i mean besides the gas? disney's "the secret world of arrietty"," angle animated
japanese film of a family of four-inch tall people. who live beneath the floors of humans in order to survive. and universal's new adaptation of the dr. seuss story "the lorax"." they live among the trees as dobbs called it. rampant industrialism. where have we all heard this before occupy wall street forever trying to pit the mickers against the takers and president obama talking about their fair share in dozens of speechers, since his state of the union just last month. >> after showing clips of both of the films, dobbs played sound bytes from the american saying that earn american should pay their fair share i'm sure there is a link between the two. this must have been what is on mary norto's mind when it was
written in 1952! and a must have been on dr. seuss' mind when he penned "the lorax" in 1971! and there is a plan to fight back in this plan to create occu-toddlers. >> buy huge tubs of popcorn, ram them in your face. it's all made of paper you crinkling it up. go in the movie theaters and fight back against this lesson. >> that ought to teach a lesson to that movie employee who cleans up your mess. but there might be a far simpler explanation for dobbs' theory. he was upset that he wasn't cast as the lorax. because i think he has the look down. >> clearly conservatives are not fans of the lorax. do we think there are dr. seuss books that they like.
>> i heard they have the book so pervasive. they have their own dr. seuss of all the places you'll go. there is, are you my mother, if so please don't abort me. and then my favorite one one fits, twofish two fish. but romney likes the grinch, but he skips over the end because it depresses him and instead he imagines the grinch on the cayman islands. >> and horton hears a stock trip. >> and horton hears an insider trading tip. >> the lorax, the muppets and the girl scouts. and we laugh but during the mccarty era the baseball team cincinnati reds proactively changed their names to cincinnati red legs so no one
would think they're communists. should we be worried about dickens, bugs bunny. >> dora the explorer. >> superman. >> without anything super, more deli than super. but dora the explorer is in big trouble because she was born and raised in america but lou dobbs believes she's a mexican alien because she insists on speaking spanish in public, and she's asking to be deported. >> this is a good time to mention this, did you know of lou dobbs' wife, her maiden name: i used to work with her. if anyone at home doesn't understand this. she's debby segura dobbs. >> oh, my god. >> exactly. it's a deep deep waters we're entering in. some of the comments are not necessarily questioning climate
change but more like a real hostile environment about the environment. it's one step further--don't you think, than it's usually is? don't they stop at some point now that they're saying real science allows us to flatten the earth, pave everything over and utilize all this stuff that we've been given. >> i said this months ago when herman cain was pre-tending to be relevant, the 2012 g.o.p. slogan is yes we hate. these are people who are taking tips from franklin graham, hateful cracker. they've taken hate to a new level. who hates dr. seuss? green eggs and ham not my favorite book but the hate towards dr. seuss is ridiculous. and it's insane that lou dobbs is blaming the lorax and his mission on president obama. how is he responsible when at the time that book was written he was a ten-year-old kid swinging off a monkey bars. he had nothing to do with that
book. >> keep one story together. if it doesn't fit the timeline, do not come and tell me that he wasn't born in this country but he influenced a book that was written nine years before his birth. and this reference to occu-toddlers. this is a gave away. a desperate attempt to stand at the ocean and not just push the tide back but not ever see the tide. it's the future they're fearing. >> he doesn't under what occupy stand for. they don't understand what occupy is trying to do is ensure a future to these kids that you're trying to disenfranchise. if they occupy anything, it should be a corner because rick santorum is right. satan is in america and he's wearing a sweater vest. >> as always, good to see you. >> so nice to be back.
